Height Restrictions, Remove or Stay?

@IAMCRAIG-0 said in Height Restrictions, Remove or Stay?:

I want an insta ban on anyone that uses the tag loli/shotacon in LB or in their character name, but we can't have everything.

Oh my... You are really weird saying this here. Also totally off topic... You really hate people.

Answer the topic correctly: Do you want the height restriction removed? Yes or no

Remove the height restriction now

Lmfao the slow, steady 1-by-1 crawl of yes votes. Stop shuffling your IP address around, guy who's that upset about nude Hitsugi.

Please remove the height restriction and the censorship. We were told that the localized version of PSO2 would have all the same content as the Japanese version.

Censorship, ie; removing or otherwise altering content in a significant manner, flies in the face of this. To censor the Western version is to ensure that the Western and Japanese versions will never be identical.

there is no height restriction if you really think about it, all restrictions only exist in our minds and we can transcend them through meditation

Honestly if you guys are that upset at not seeing the characters naked, you can just google them.

You might get put on an fbi watchlist mind you.

Those are the so called "Trolls", right?
They are currently trying to hijack the thread, not respecting the argument.

looks like someone's shackled to the physical world, meanwhile I'm rotating twenty different characters of all different sizes in my head and having an amazing time

size is merely a number, imbue your characters with the spirit of being and worry not about an arbitrary scrawling in the corner

Ok you're right, but SEGA thinks differently, for them the number matters, and they have taken everyone away the possibility to create characters with a number lower than 150. They deliberately set that number just for us. If that doesn't matter to you, please go away, don't answer this topic.

looks like someone's never entering the Pure Land

As someone who doesn't like the rising trend of sexualization of games that do not need it in my opinion, I support the original JP height limits..... I still want my god damn chibi gundam...

I started to play pso2 global today, and my friend instantly shared to me this thread.

I'm not a fan of the censorship, I want at least the height restriction removed.

I translate and localize Japanese projects myself, so I'm aware of the process and what it entails. Sometimes things get cut or changed for a multitude of reasons. In my opinion, these cuts were made to serve a purpose and therefore should stay. As we're all able to access the cut content via youtube and other sources too, I think it's fair enough.

I will say that I'm not a fan of censorship either, but I think this is a special case which again serves a purpose.

I honestly agree with this sentiment. I've google-fu'd some of the names really adamant about keeping this sort of content and it's just about what you'd expect. Let's just say it's obvious why they want it restored.

Even in-game, people with those sort of names are most likely to have erotic auto-chats and pornographic SAs. It's enough of a problem that I think banning based on names might curb it a bit.

Remove the censorship. It's all nice to argue it's "for our own good" or whatever you believe. Methinks you dost protest too much and some guilt is showing.

It's honestly pretty easy to tell which ones those are by just looking at the arguments made here in bad faith, or pretending that they have never heard of the issues that lead to all of this in the first place, instead making it out to be a kneejerk reaction 'by the west' and 'cancel culture', which are big enough dog whistles on their own. Then the false equivalency arguments like "geeze you must hate all of the skimpy outfits in the game too". The best is the "geeze, if you care so much about this maybe YOU'RE the pedophile", like that's supposed to make sense.

To be perfectly fair, the height slider change was just Sega being lazy as hell so they didn't have to commit to outright saying they were wrong in releasing much of the content they did nor the manpower to properly moderate the game to ban people that made lolicons/shotacons (let alone something that could handle the bots spamming lobbies or any training/leadership to more effectively combat the problem). To summarize, Sega wants to have their cake and eat it too.
